 Their problem. Many distributions selectively pick patches from

 Not completely, but you are (assuming this is still about qt-copy/patches and 
not just qt-copy itself). I originally created qt-copy/patches because back 
then I got tired of trying to push patches through qt-bugs and I wanted a 
place where such patches could be collected and shared. So basically 
qt-copy/patches is for Qt patches that should be in Qt but are not, for 
whatever reason.
